Far•o supply co

far•o supply co is an ethical lifestyle brand created with the purpose of supporting makers and some of the most vulnerable residents of Javillar, Dominican Republic.
far•o supports makers who are upstanding members of their community. All proceeds from the sales of far•o products are donated to the Shine the Light Community and Job Training Centre in Javillar. One of the aims of the centre is to empower women with job training and skills development. Currently, we are supporting accredited sewing and carpentry programs as well as counselling and tutoring. Our hope is to one day work alongside some of these women as they become independent makers themselves.
Our business model involves keeping a small inventory of stock in Winnipeg to reduce overproduction and the resulting environmental impact. We also regularly take orders for our products. Each product is then handmade specifically for our clients by our skilled makers. In both scenarios, the makers set the prices for the goods they produce. Now that Wendy isn’t regularly travelling to the Dominican with her family to lead Shine the Light trips, and bringing far•o goods home in her suitcase, we are doing bulk shipping from the DR to minimize the cost and global emissions.
